Training is required if laser-guided weapons are to be used effectively, but the cost when using the full sale weapon is prohibitive. This report describes a prototype for a low cost 140 laser guidance unit designed to be used in conjunction with a BDU-33 practice bomb. This unit, completely self contained, can be dropped from the SUU-20 practice ordnance dispenser. It uses the same type laser illuminator and has a guidance logic similiar to the standard laser guided bomb and therefore provides realistic training. The unit could be used for low cost and effective laser-guided weapons training.
